Printmaking studios in San Francisco?

I'm fairly new to the city and am currently looking into using a printmaking studio, either through a school or otherwise. Does anyone have any suggestions?

    Hi there. I'm in the south bay (San Jose area). There are plenty of possibilities in and around the city as far as I know. The first the comes to mind is the Kala institute in Berkeley ( They also have nice classes there. A bit further south is foothill college but that might be too far for you. And I'm sure that at the SF Art institute there are possibilities. Oh, and of course - there is the SF Center for the book which you absolutely have to check out. I think the URL is or such.

    HOpe that gets you started. If not, feel free to ping me directly :)

    There are a few that I know about. Probably more.

    One studio where I have not printed, but I have some friends who do: is the Graphic Arts Workshop

    Another place where there is a great press and cheap classes is City College

    And finally, I have taken some classes from Katie Gilmartin in SomaArts. She has a great press in her studio and if you're a student, she has a few open printing times per year. But mostly it's for classes.
